CALEDONIA—Several dead or dying trees in the Avalon subdivision of Caledonia have some residents upset and looking to the County for a solution.

The Press spoke with County spokesperson Kyra Hayes on the broader issue of tree maintenance and replacement throughout Haldimand County.

“For street trees that are planted in new subdivisions, the responsibility for tree planting can be the County, developer, or home builder depending on each subdivision agreement, as a variety of methods to accommodate tree planting have been implemented over the years,” said Hayes.
